Get your black light’s out cause are about to have a party with these Neon Tree Ornaments! Remember when I made this neon pumpkin! It was a HIT… So I figured I would make another NEON HIT with these cute neon ornaments.
Let me tell you before I start that this was an accidental project. I found these neon “things” one day when I was shopping in Michaels. I thought they were really cool and figured they would look good in a vase in my my studio. Then one day I looked at them and realized they looked like mini trees. BAM! That is how a project usually happens for me. Right brain for sho! Just thought I would share that with ya franssss!
Let’s get started.
You will need: Neon Fluffy Pipe Cleaners (I got these from Michaels) | Scissors | Mod Podge Collage Clay in White | Brush | Shiny Glitter | Pliers | Clear Ornaments
After you spread out your collage clay inside of your ornament grab your pliers and carefully place your mini neon trees inside. They will sit right in the middle of that white gooey pile of collage clay and once it’s dry your trees are good to go.
I love collage clay! If you have never used it I suggest getting your hands dirty and grab some from your local craft store. This stuff here is literally like icing on top of the cake. You can spread this stuff out on any surface, drop in glitter, jewels, trinkets then VOILA! Let it sit for a hot minute (that means a few hours) and everything is secured in place.
Is your brain going nuts now? I can’t stop thinking about all the things I can do with this!
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial from the bottom of my little ole heart! Huge glittery hugs from my computer screen all the way to YOU! xoxo, JADE
I will be in Anaheim CA for the Craft and Hobby Association conference in January! I am super exited and all I will tell you is I will be doing some make -n- takes at a certain book and an appearance! I can’t wait to see all of my virtual friends there so make sure to look for the glittery girl giving out glitter bomb wishes!! xoxo
Remember when I did demos for Plaid, check out this video (don’t mind my thick accent) HEHE
There is nothing better than going in your backyard with $2 glass bottles and in 30 minutes staring at beautiful faux milk glass for your home. That is the kinda stuff I live for. Let’s be real not everyone can afford to really make a FULL centerpiece with “real” milk glass. Thankfully I collect it but I am surely not putting in out on my table to get knocked over. Recently I did a tutorial on puffy paint vases so that is what we will use as our base for this tutorial.
I am in love with these bottles and I can’t wait to make so many more. Just think how gorgeous these will look for different holidays. You can do red ones for Christmas, brown ones for Thanksgiving and orange or black ones for Halloween. Did I mention these are so fun for kids? Ok let’s get started.
Remember these Neon Puffy Paint bottles that I made this week? You will have to do this first before we turn them into “Milk Glass”. Get the full tutorial HERE.
All you need to do is spray paint the bottles with about 3-4 coats. Don’t try to coat the bottle right off the bat. Spray thin coats and I promise eventually it will be opaque. If you try to make it opaque in the first layer it will start dripping. (trust me, haha)
I hope you enjoyed this tutorial! Stay tuned for some other fun crafts this coming week!
How would you display these?
When I think of LOVE I imagine everything white, fluffy and full of Christmas lights. Whuhh? You don’t think that’s love? FINE, LOVE is fried chicken, cozy pj’s and a ice cold coca cola. Better! (teeeheee)
Seriously yesterday morning I woke up around 3am because this cough decided it wanted to get up and drink coffee, craft and watch tv. I can’t get rid of this darn cough y’all. If you have any home remedies please leave me a comment cause I need something that’s gonna work. So, I am up aimlessly walking around trying to figure out what I could do. I really didn’t care as long as it had to do with an upward position. It seems the “cough” only likes to act nice when I am not laying down.
I went to my studio and the first thing I saw was puffy paint. YES! I had some bottles soaking in water for another craft I was going to do but who cares, I just grabbed them.
Off to crafting I went. 6 am I was done with craft and already shot pictures. Wahooo let’s get started on these puffy paint vases.
Are you flipping out. Cause I am. I think I am a little 7 year old inside because anything that is bright still makes me super giddy all inside.

(the ones I used were sparkling water)
Soak your bottles in ice cold water. I don’t know why but this makes the paper come right off. I usually put them in the water for about 2 hours.
See! It just peels off. I don’t put anything in the water btw.
Look how purdy! You would never know these once were just sparkling water bottles.
Choose your puffy paint colors and start puffing. (teehehe)
All you need to do is put dot’s in any pattern that you want. I just winged it and put dot’s down. I mean dont’ get me wrong, I had an idea of what I wanted before I started but I didn’t use a template.
How stinking cute are these. I kid you not, they were dry in 1 hour. Perfect last minute gift, right!
I hope you have a great Saturday and you enjoy puffing your paint. See ya in the next post Jaderbugs!
Happy Saturday Jaderbugs.
I am living a crazy hectic life lately. You know how that is right? Ton’s of deadlines, people ordering you around and crying because you just can’t do it all. Oh, you don’t know what I am talking about? Paahaha
I am sure that sounds very familiar to all of ya. I have a ton of new tutorials going up on the blog this week I even have a video tutorial and a Fall Haul video. Did I mention a THOUSAND other deadlines. Do you ever wish you had another you to help out? I do, and she would wear turtlenecks, pencil skirts, fish net stockings and high heels every single day. She wouldn’t drink Dr. Pepper everyday, eat Christmas cakes or stay up late. She would prolly have a house that was all painted (inside) vintage white and she would have a maid. Sheesh I can’t forget an assistant.That’s right. My other “me” would have an assistant. Hey nobody said it isn’t fun to dream.
Today I wanted to share with you some things that can brighten up your day or just your life. NEON. No matter what kinda day your are having, just slap on some neon and BAM. Just like that you will feel better. Plus the good thing about NEON is it really makes you look darker. Even if you have pale skin it’s like an instant snooki tan. Well maybe not a snooki tan, I don’t want you to look orange.
I hope you enjoy these amazing things I wanted to share with you.
I hope you enjoyed this post! Remember to mix and match all of these to get great looks! Don’t forget to come back this week to see all of the exiting things I will be showing you.
See you in the next post
